Allhallows public toilets to be closed during refurbishment works

Allhallows is among the car parks that will now be closed

The public toilets at Allhallows car park will be closed for a week in February, to enable Bedford Borough Council to carry out refurbishment works.

The toilets will be closed from Sunday 2 February to Friday 5 February.

In that time all the fixtures and fittings will be removed, repairs carried out to any defective or loose plasterwork, and the walls, doors and woodwork will be repainted.

The fixtures and fittings will then be put back in, with the toilets reopening in time for the second weekend in February.

Cllr Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for Environment said, “These toilets were given a major refurbishment during the regeneration of the car park.

“We continuously work to keep public facilities at a high standard that people would expect, so on occasion we do need to close facilities off to allow us to give them a real refresh.

“We have timed these works to ensure that these toilets are open at the weekend, to minimise the impact on people coming to visit the town centre. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this closure.”

There will be signage in place in advance of the closure, and throughout directing people to closest alternative facilities.

There are attended public facilities at St Paul’s Square and Lurke Street, and public toilets in the Harpur Centre, as well as a number of facilities available throughout the town centre through the Community Toilet Scheme.
